Limestone Academy

Introducing Limestone Academy!


(2024 Terms)



Limestone Academy offers mentorship and supervision for a limited number of specially selected, top-notch students who are interested to up-level their therapy game for expertly and efficiently healing depression and anxiety. We have invested resources into MacGyvering up our systems and processes for this practicum experience, and we are ready to go full bore into making you a better therapist!

We are interested to work with students who are seeking practicum placements of duration 8 months (or longer), and who can commit to 2 full days practice per week.

We are not currently accepting applications for placements.


  • You believe in making the most of your student training opportunities, and don't half-ass things;

  • You realize that even though you may be amazing and super-talented, you are in the end, a therapist beginner, and you have a lot to learn - you are open to learning the how-to's and the wherefore's from experienced clinicians who have your best interests in mind -- You plan to do what they say to do, even if it challenges you and is uncomfortable as a learner;

  • You are excited and energized at the thought of co-creating new-and-improved life trajectories with adult (18+) individual therapy clients who are interested in and motivated for therapy, relative to working in a setting where you may or may not be able to help clients achieve real change;


  • You are WARM, approachable, and genuine, yet also uber-professional, ethical, organized, well-trained, driven to learn and achieve stellar clinical results, *amazing* with computers, and you are pretty flexible and can roll with the punches;​

  • You have BADASS boundaries and recognize that it is not your job to help or save everyone, nor is this even realistically possible or a good idea;

  • You are aligned with our core value of inclusivity and acceptance, and you respect and honour different ethnicities, identities, sexual orientations and lifestyles;

  • (regarding the above-noted bullet point, it is worth noting that you are also a best-fit if you are not put off by a wee modicum of colourful swearing that may occur from time to time, especially by Dr. Kris (sorry, not sorry, well, sorta sorry));

  • You are able and willing to come to work in the office in person for a minimum of one day per week. You value an in-person learning opportunity because you understand that this facilitates more opportunities for student learning from the entire team, as well as removes temptations to rely on online crutches - you don't believe in accepting less-than-maximal learning opportunities when a better option is available;

  • You are honest about your strengths and your "opportunity areas," in your placement application, as you see no point in lying to people who will, upon commencement of working with you, soon figure out if you lied about the extent of your skills, anyways;

  • You are good at following directions, rules, and protocols respectfully, and understand that these exist for very good reasons, even if the reasons are not immediately apparent to you;

  • The idea of lying to your supervisor about what you did/said or how a session *truly* went fills you with horror;

  • You have excellent interpersonal communication skills, a strong attention to detail, and you can *type* with *accuracy* for logins and electronic records (we are a paperless office);

  • You are willing to invest your own work on yourself, or have had positive personal therapy experience(s) already (as the best therapists are therapists who have therapy experience as clients, who know what it's like to sit in "the other chair," who don't look down on those in that chair, and who can identify their own countertransference triggers and challenges);

  • You love being a part of a team, especially with others who are invested in providing exceptionally high-quality services to the community. You will make efforts to get to know your teammates and spend your socializing opportunities gelling with the team;

  • You are intending to work as a licensed registered psychotherapy provider in Ontario once you complete your degree and love the idea that, if your practicum went well, continuing to work within our team to develop your skills (yes we are interested in this, too!);

  • You are available to work on the clinic's stated practicum student days and understand that our office operates Mondays to Fridays, 8:30-5:00pm, (except stat holidays, of course). You will receive an assignment of two days within that span. ​


  • You have signed up for, or (BONUS BONUS, BONUS!) have completed the online CPT training through the USVA or have attended another training in Cognitive Processing Therapy for trauma in person/online.

  • You will find a way to say a friendly "hello" to the Pink Baby Elephant who lives at Limestone Clinic HR in your cover letter, to show us that you are paying careful attention to the application process.



If this sounds like you and your goal is to train to be an amazing, astute clinician to provide highly effective professional therapy services, please email your most recent academic transcripts and a cover letter about yourself (don't tell us what is required in a practicum - we already know!) to:


At Limestone Clinic HR, we offer a comprehensive training program and bonus, free learning library, for those seeking to learn the skills necessary to provide quality therapeutic services. Our training program covers foundational skills you need to have never feel lost or confused in talk therapy, as well as the nuts-and-bolts how-to's to teach you how to be successful working in private practice.​

Please do not phone, email, fax, or mail in a resume or a letter inquiring about our Academy program as an alternate way of applying. Alternate or incomplete applications will not be considered. Let's start with your transcripts and we will connect with you from there for next steps.
